Stored Purpose - Hypothesis

Intelligence could be described objectively, and thus designed algorithmically


<< Introduction - What is Stored Purpose? | Stored Purpose Terminology and Etymology >>


Warren Jones, Lana Rubalsky (2010) "Stored Purpose - Hypothesis", wJones Research, August 10, 2010
  1. That a system can be designed to “exist” at an arbitrary or abstract state of higher organization and lower entropy such that elements of the system will sustain the defined state indefinitely for the duration of its existence.
  2. That a design model can define both the higher organization state, or “nature of existence,” or “Purpose” of the system and a means for employing matter and energy to sustain that nature.
  3. That the Purpose of a system can be defined as pure information, both Platonically and contextually, such that its definition remains valid across all possible state conditions of the system.
  4. That Goal pursuit can be designed as a fundamental architecture to employ matter and energy as technology to align the measured states of a system with desired information states of Purpose.
  5. That the Purpose of a system can be defined quantitatively, as a sum of Goals and mechanisms that satisfy all possible state conditions.
  6. That a system can be designed to sustain Purpose as a contiguous, “flicker-free” stream of frames, each dependent upon delivery of the prior result with zero delay, performed perpetually for the “life” of its existence, in spite of information flow rate constraints, defined by Lorentz and described by Einstein.
  7. That existence processing can be designed free of hidden variables, such that probabilistic Expression of states, will be the transparent outcome of direct Translation of discrete, local information Construction.
  8. That Purpose can be designed for systems of various levels of complexity, including atomic, cellular, multi-cellular, multi-component, multi-component plus mind and ecosystems.
  9. That the aggregate Purpose of a complex system can be distributed among components of the system such that each component “exists” and intelligently pursues a subset of system Goals that comprise the Identity of an existential entity, or “agent” of the system.
  10. That a human-made metacomputer can be designed to sustain Purpose and distribute Purpose among agents of the system, such that aggregate outcome of the system’s agency will be the aggregate Purpose of the system.
  11. That an ecosystem can be designed with all features described above, such that Purpose is sustained and that all energy and matter transactions performed by agents of the system, can be made work of the system. Thus the matter and energy output of all intermediate outcomes in the ecosystem will be balanced and conserved.
